Class Participation and Attendance
** The total possible points earned during the semester by a student will probably not add up to points stated above so it will be necessary to normalize the points of this category to 100 points. For instance, if your total possible score for homework adds to 85 points for the semester, the points that you have earned will become a percentage of 85 points which, in turn, will be multiplied by the 100 points needed for grading. For instance if you were to accumulate 85 points for homework assignments and quizzes, you will receive 100 points toward your final grade (85 earned points / 85 possible points) X 100 = 100.
Your final grade will be based upon points earned during the semester:
950 -1000 points A
900 - 949
870 – 899
840 – 869
800 – 839
770 - 799
740 - 769
700 - 739
640 – 669
600 - 639
